This is the first illustration for my serialized story The Lair of the Clockwork Book
, which began its run this week at Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual
). The story updates with a new illustrated page each Monday and Thursday, and will run for fourteen months there.
It's a linear, serialized story meant to complement the branching stories like Trapped in the Tower of the Brain Thieves
On this first page we see a view over the city of Retropolis - just so we know where we are, here in the retro future - as we consider that there are some places in every city where people just don't go, and we explore the reasons why that's true.
